The New 7 Wonders of the World

Posted on: July 8, 2007

Lisbon, Portugal, July 7, 2007 – The world saw the results of the global election that elevated the status of 7 man-made monumental sites as the New Seven Wonders of the World.

From the Seven Ancient Wonders List made by Herodotus and Callimachus of Greek, the election was based from internet votes and telephone/cellphone votes of candidates for the New 7 Wonders. The list of 177 nominees, the candidates was narrowed to 21 sites, including the Great Pyramid of Giza, and later the Pyramids was proclaimed as an honorary delegate, for its status being the only remnant of the Ancient Wonders.

Here is the list of the New 7 Wonders of the World (Credits to Wikipedia)
